Hebrews 6:18-19

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

I think that it perhaps goes wider than just removing the aspect only position. For example, just as cross linguistic work such as that referred to by Locatell and andrasson shows grammaticalisation paths there are also lexicalisation paths. Relevance theory’s proposed pragmatic processes such as br...

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

Bear in mind that I am an uneducated amateur but I would say no. I do however think that perhaps the importance of it has been overplayed possibly because of the heat of some of the debate. We can focus too much on assigning hard values to things when in reality I am coming to believe that even lexi...

Re: Contract Verbs

Nice update, thanks Stephen.

Re: Books to help reading Hebrews

Thanks all, I will check those resources out
The first couple of chapters seems remarkably pleasant reading other than 2:3b. Am just certain that it is going to change and I am going to need the assist
